Some more findings/testing with the 12-200
1

Having the lens for a few more days I compared it a bit more with my other lenses at similar focal length and apertures.

So at 120mm and f5-f6 my Fuji 16-80 is sharper, especially at the corners when you zoom in the image.

on the left is the 12-200

Another subject again at 120mm produces less differences:

on the left is the 12-200

And if we zoom in:

Cant see that big of a difference at least on center, where the 16-80 is pretty sharp.

Things are getting worse for 12-200 when you compare it with the RX10IV:

The RX10IV on the right is considerably sharper (more than the 16-80 too). Of course if you don't crop or zoom in that difference is not that meaningful

So overall, the 12-200 is not the sharpest lens ever, but its IQ is respectable and pretty good if you consider how convenient it is.
